Review by:
Susana V. Fischbein

As already stated in the Introduction to its first review, alongside current trends in Argentinean psychoanalysis, the APA Journal has addressed significant controversial topics in psychoanalysis over a long period, without neglecting the social environment, its diversity and the help it demands. From its inception, the Revista's pluralistic orientation has allowed the dissemination of different theoretical frames of reference. Following these criteria, the current review will primarily focus on those issues of the 2011 and 2012 volumes that have addressed this kind of topics.

Issues 2-3, 2011 are called Voces del pluralismo (Voices of Pluralism). Pluralism has been the grounds for institutional debate long before the subject appeared in the international psychoanalytic community in the 1990s. These volumes are pluralistic in different ways: some of the papers deal with this subject, either viewed as a topic to be investigated on or as a pragmatic and methodological means to validate the psychoanalytic method. Other papers tackle the subject in connection with psychoanalysis as science and as research; pluralism is also approached in light of institutional ideology and scientific activities; still others either discuss different authors or expound upon how psychoanalytic technique may be faced in a pluralistic institution.

Ruben and Raquel Zuckerfeld open the first section with their paper ‘About Psychoanalytic Culture: A Plea for a Rigorous Pluralism’. They consider that the plurality of existing psychoanalytic theories and the variety of technical resources in clinical practice bring about the fragmentation in schools, groups and subgroups and entail complex problems in the communication among psychoanalysts belonging to different cultures, and lines of thought.
